The Economic Freedom Fighters has blasted former President Nelson Mandela’s grandson Mandla Mandela’s call for a probe of Winnie Mandela on the death of Stompie Moeketsi and Abu-Baker Asvat.
The EFF says this is vindictiveness.
The EFF accuses Mandla of opportunistically seeking to further discredit Winnie Mandela in the empty hope of inheriting Mandela’s legacy instead of building his own.
Since EFF Leader Julius Malema was expelled from the ANC in 2012, he made it his mission to disagree with and discredit the ANC but he has always listened to Mam Winnie.
It is not surprising that EFF has come out guns blazing in support of Winnie Mandela as grandson Mandla wants to her probed.
EFF says Winnie’s two cases were a not only settled by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, but Winnie has already paid the price for her presumed involvement.
EFF says in his dark heart, Mandla wishes to erase Mama Mandela the same way the apartheid system sought to do. In a statement, EFF Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says Winnie did not become a wife; known because of her association to Nelson Mandela but she became the woman who when Nelson Mandela and the ANC had been almost a mere memory in generations of the 1970s, she picked up the spear and breathed life to them until their return.
